Uganda – Making dreams come true

In Uganda, Bridge of Hope focuses on sponsoring children who are suffering from disability, an added burden for poor families. Ibrahim suffers from complex congenital heart disease and underwent surgery in 2004. Now aged 11 he will always need careful monitoring for his health.

 

Ibrahim’s family wanted him to live a normal life, but struggled to find the funds for his school fees in addition to his medical costs, so Bridge of Hope stepped in. Ibrahim is currently enjoying his studies at a primary school in Kireka and excels at football and drumming.

Esther has Down’s Syndrome and is the daughter of a single mother, who has two other children to support. She contacted Bridge of Hope to ask for support for Esther’s special educational needs.

Thanks to our Bridge of Hope donors, Esther is now in a nursery for children with disabilities and receives speech and movement therapy to ensure she has the best possible future.
